Yay, I'm back!!!

Don't hold your breath, but I think Mr Mojo may be returning!! An invite by Wendy of Stamps and Memories to visit for the evening and her cheeky comment below and lots of really encouraging emails from Marianne plus all the lovely comments that you have all left has finally done it!! I had a lovely evening with Wendy yesterday and decided to colour this gorgeous new image that I bought a couple of months ago, lots of chat and tea and she was coloured before I knew it!! I then raided Wendys stash and this is what I came up with!!
As it is my first card in a while, I thought it had better go in a lot of challenges, so here we go:
Sophistcat-Open challenge green, lilac + one,flowers

Allsorts - Spring is in the Air
One stop craft - Let it shine

Nestibilities labels
Martha Stewart around the edge punch

I hope you like her!!
I hope to catch up with you all soon, I am off from Friday until after Easter so am hoping to get some serious card making and blogging done.
Take care everyone, be back soon

Before and After!!

As Mandy asked the question yesterday, I thought I would give you all a quick update!! We are nearly there, just a little work to be done on the brickwork inside and window cills to be fitted. Hubby, my dear father in law, my fab Uncle and dear friend Kev have all done so well. They have all worked so hard and in such awful weather conditions and as you can see, it has been
worth the wait!!
Before and After
Would you believe that they have an identical floor area, we used the exact same base for the new one................ I don't think the garden will ever recover!! Tango was in his pose for the camera mood!!
Take care everyone
